So I've probably created a rod for my own back by doing a 3 am feed with my 8month DD. She has never slept through so I thought it's time to ween her out of this phase. I figured there should be no reason for her to wake up around 3 for a bottle other than for a comfort feed. She's well fed in the evening and always willing to go to sleep between 7-730.
So for the last few nights I have let her cry it out. First night woke once 10 mins then back to sleep. Second night woke twice first occasion 10 mins second occasion 15 mins (had to tend to her as she was a bit upset). Third night woke twice again but cried for around 15-20 mins each time.
Am I doing the right thing by letting her cry it out?
I have heard it from many mums that have said it worked for them. I just feel awful having to resort to this.
AM NO LONGER TINKERING WITH THE TICKER HMPH!
